Aakhri Sach is based on the Burari deaths that shocked the entire nation. It is about a ritual mass family suicide that happened in Delhi and the angle of murder can not be ruled out. This series is about the Police finding out about what suddenly happened that wiped off the family.


While Tamannaah Bhatia’s character, Anya is put in charge of this case, she works tirelessly as people have started criticizing Delhi Police and some are questioning her abilities as she is a woman who has been put on a high-profile case.


The scene in which all eleven family members are seen hanging is sensitive and viewer discretion or parental supervision is advised. The series made the same disclaimer before the beginning of each episode.


Anya begins interrogating the neighbors and though it may come as a shock it is a nice family that the whole neighborhood likes. Recently, Anshika (the daughter of this family) also got engaged however surprisingly none among the neighbors was invited. The gangsters seem to have a hand in this incident. It will be revealed in subsequent angles why they wanted to harm this family.


A larger force appears to be at play. I am not ready to believe that some gully gangsters or a family feud will be responsible for wiping an entire family off—the death of a whole family by depicting it as a suicide is chilling.


Till now only two episodes have been released out of the eight episodes. Tamannaah Bhatia is playing the lead role and other cast members include Sanjiv Chopra, Kriti Vij, Salim Siddiqui, Shivin Narang, Abhishek Banerjee, Nishu Dikshit, Sunny Saini, and Danish Iqbal.


Tamannaah Bhatia hasn’t shown a worthy performance in these two episodes and I’m more impressed by Shivin Narang’s role playing Anshika’s (the daughter of the deceased family) fiancee. He is hiding something and we know it. Although in the first episode, he has been portrayed as someone who might be behind this unfortunate incident, the second one cleared these doubts as he went to settle scores with Jayant.


The makers could have created an interesting series using the plot based on real events, but it seems like not much effort has been put in. The beginning is very dull and I don’t expect things to intensify in the middle of the series. Other than that, the plot seems to be exaggerated as the episode doesn’t make significant progress when we switch from one episode to the next.


The action scenes in the film like the one in which Tamannaah Bhatia runs after the gang member could have been so much better, however, it was just poor editing, camera angles, and no moves. Again, I would say that the material writers and makers had in hand was more than sufficient to make a great series.


In my opinion, you can skip this series until all the episodes are released and we reach a final verdict if it is worth a watch or not. So far, so bland.


Final Score – [5/10]
